Bell HTC Sensation 4G gets first OTA update, performance and GPS improvements in tow

Bell’s HTC Sensation 4G has been out for two weeks today, and to commemorate the occasion (or perhaps by complete coincidence) the company has pushed out a small OTA update bringing smoother overall performance and faster GPS lock capabilities, along with a newer kernel. The build date is June 13th (the shipping version was June 2nd). One of the things we noticed about the Sensation in our review was its occasional sluggishness, which makes this such a welcome surprise so soon after launch. We’re still running Android 2.3.3, and no, the bootloader hasn’t been unlocked yet, but HTC already promised it for September.

So if you have received the OTA update already, what are your thoughts? Any noticeable improvements?
